A brief description of the sustainable operations and maintenance policy/program and/or O+M rating system(s) used:

UM space is operated and maintained in accordance with a the following multi-attribute, sustainable management policies and programs (but not certified under a rating system):
- The UM Energy and Water Management program are a part of long running efforts by UM Physical Plant to reduce energy and water consumption. Reductions not only benefit the university by the reduction of resulting emissions, but also reduces operating costs.

- UM Indoor air quality is an important focus of occupational health and safety at the university. UM manages a series of programs and procedures to promote indoor air quality from initial construction to daily operations to decommissioning of facilities. Responsibilities of air quality management are shared amongst a variety of roles across the Physical Plant and the Environmental Health & Safety Office (EHSO) departments. Experts in facilities management, engineering and ventilation systems work collaboratively with health and safety professionals to provide a safe environment to work and learn.

- The UM Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program employs a combination of physical, mechanical, cultural, behavioral, biological and chemical controls designed to manage ecosystems and pests to prevent problems from becoming uncontrollable, with the intent of minimizing chemical controls. Chemical practice will only be employed when the risk of plant loss is certain without the use of chemicals. The loss would cause incredible financial hardships (eg. Chinch Bug in a sports turf area).
